After an opening weekend with numerous cinemas reporting sold out shows, No Stone Unturned  has charted 5th at the Northern Ireland Box Office and was the highest new entry after Paddington 2.  The film, which is the latest from the producers of Bobby Sands 66 Days and is written and directed by the Oscar-winning Alex Gibney, took over €33,000 for the island of Ireland and charted in the Top 10.

Now due to popular demand, the documentary will open in new cinemas this Friday 17th November  – Eclipse Lifford Strabane, Movie House Coleraine and Omniplex Craigavon.

On 18 June 1994 in the small village of Loughinisland, County Down, three gunmen burst into a pub with assault rifles and fired on the customers, killing six civilians and wounding five. The pub was crowded with people watching the Republic of Ireland team playing in the 1994 FIFA World Cup.  No one has ever spent a day in prison for this, one of the more awful crimes of the Irish “Troubles.”

In the film, Gibney ignites a fire under this cold case that has frustrated the victims’ families for more than 20 years.  Through interviews with victims’ families, former terrorists, officers of the Royal Ulster Constabulary and other government officials as well as piecing together official documents and previously uncharted leaks of information, Gibney explores the incongruities of the case and connects the dots between mass murder and official malfeasance, between memory and sanctioned amnesia.

No Stone Unturned was written and directed by Alex Gibney and produced by Trevor Birney for Fine Point Films in association with Jigsaw Productions and Kew Media Group.
